Amphenol Industrial Global Operations, a provider of interconnect systems, has incorporated Tigo Energy's PV optimizer technology into a new junction box. According to the companies, this combination allows for increased power efficiency and eliminates the need for add-on products.
The HBFMMJ-ES50, also known as the Tigo-Amphenol Optimizer, is the first in its class to receive CSA certification for integrated smart module technology, Amphenol and Tigo add.
The junction box incorporates Tigo Energy's optimizer directly onto the solar module, fulfilling the growing demand for lower part count and easier installation of solar products. It increases energy harvest and system uptime, while providing better arc, fire and safety hazard mitigation, the companies add.
